Most people discard the rind of the juicy watermelon, but don't be so hasty – the watermelon rind has many benefits. Not only does the rind contain plenty of health-promoting and blood-building chlorophyll, but the rind actually contains more of the amino acid citrulline than the pink flesh. Whether you eat the rind or use it topically, this often-wasted food can do good things for your body. Finding a use for it also helps cut down on the amount of garbage you produce, so it's good for the environment as well.
This year's edition of ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue will feature six different cover images with six different athletes posing in the nude. Those six athletes are Odell Beckham Jr., Kevin Love, Bryce Harper, Natalie Coughlin, Chantae McMillan, and Amanda Bingson. I got dibs on Natalie, you get Amanda.
One very underrated movie out there is The Big Kahuna, which is about three sales reps at a trade convention. The vast majority of the film takes place in hotel's hospitality suite with nearly every single line of dialogue is spoken by one of the three actors: Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, and n00b Peter Facinelli. The latter of whom's biggest claim to fame is banging Jennie Garth. Anyway, what's tangently entertaining is how they take something so mundane -- in this case, industrial lubricants -- and get so excited about it. I suppose the same can be said for almost any aspect in life, including industrial packaging. When Kraft first released the flip top cap for Miracle Whip back in 1998, trade magazines heralded the revolutionary, "polyethylene terephthalate bottle topped with a flip-top screw-on dispensing cap," and noted, "Seaquist Closures supplies the 33-400 injection-molded polypropylene directional pour spout." Me, eh, I just saw it as a bottle of Miracle Whip.
Ernie, Easy, somewhere around the 3000blk of Paradise Rd in Vegas. That's the old Hilton sign that became the LVH (Las Vegas Hotel) after Hilton pulled up stakes. Imaginative Huh? They did the same thing back east here in Atlantic City closing the Hilton and that became the ACH which itself is also closed now. That curve is the track of the Las Vegas Monorail but my Google Earth won't give me the exact angle. Also the latest Google Earth pic from 4/15 shows that the sign now shows the property as part of the Westgate chain. Ern, you put up enough LV pics, you oughta just GO and see it yourself. Tom
Ernie, pretty sure she watched the fireworks from the parking lot to the left of this, but it has changed, and even google cant keep up. BTW, If you dont already, you should look into picking up a Swiss K31 while they are still under $300, Some of the finest C&R guns out there, their firearm craftsmanship is pretty much the reason no one invaded them in two world wars. Thanks, Wingnut
I've thought about picking up a Swiss K31 before, but just never really had the drive to follow through with it. On a whim, I hit the first place I think of for surplus rifles, but AIM Surplus is sold out. I spent a few minutes checking other online retailers but that didn't yield any better results. Checking local ads, one near me is not too badly priced ($380) but on another site he's lowered it to $350. So eh, I dunno. Maybe one of these days.
Semi-related.... sometimes people wonder why I post specific ammunition prices on my site, when I can just link directly to the site itself. Record keeping, my dear Watson. Take for example a 440 round spam can of 54R for my favorite milsuplus... ye olde Mosins Nagant rifles. In May of 2012 a 440 round spam of Mosin ammo was $75 and that seemed to hold pretty steady through April of 2014, when a case of 880 rounds set you back $157, or $78 per 440 round spam can. All the while I've been beating the drum about how surplus ammo was a result of the Cold War and a finite resource. Then in November of 2014 -- less than 8 months ago -- the price had jumped to $93 for 440 rounds. And now? You can't touch a spam can for less than $119 -- that's almost a 60% increase in just two years. I'm telling you kids, if you shoow 54R stock up while this surplus ammo is available. It's like real estate; they're not making any more of it and the price is never, ever going to go down.
I need to get some film developed in a hurry, so I need you to show me where this Photoautomat is located at!
If the first rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about Fight Club. And the second rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about Fight Club. Then I'm going to let you in on a little secret... and that is I imagine the third rule would be something like you do not take pictures of Fight Club, yes?
You still don't get it, do you? He'll find her! That's what he does! That's ALL he does! You can't stop him! He'll wade through you, reach down her throat and pull her fuckin' heart out!
